The Beginnings of Nordson Park

The Nordson Forest Park is a 60-hectare man-made community forest that was created in 1996. It can be found in Victorias City, Negros Occidental in the Philippines. For many generations, the land was used for sugarcane plantations until the current owner Atty. Nordy P. Diploma initiated planting the first batch of trees with the help of several students from La Salle.

Through their efforts, more than 30 hectares of the land were soon filled with around 25 varieties of trees. 

These young trees were grown in a bamboo house which was the original tree nursery of Nordson Forest Park.

The Negros Occidental Science High School was also founded here on the 3-hectare campus that the owner Atty. Nordy P. Diploma donated.
